Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes real-life case studies and exercises where participants will be engaged in a series of interactive small groups and class workshops. Storage tanks store a diverse variety of liquids used in the hydrocarbon processing industry at oil/gas fields, refineries, petrochemical plants, marine terminals, bulk storage, oil depots and marketing terminals. They are also part of the support facilities in other industries, such as fuel storage tanks at power plants. These tanks have gained importance and visibility in recent years due to failures that have resulted in hydrocarbon spills and environmental impact. Following these incidents, there has been a marked increase in governmental regulation and industry attention to tanks. Tank gauging is essential for the assessment of tank contents, tank inventory control and tank farm management. Modern tank gauges help in accurate level gauging for refineries, tank terminals and petrochemical industries. They are suitable for custody transfer as well as inventory control and are usually designed to be used in SIL-3 loops to prevent spillage.This course is designed to provide an up-to-date overview of the tank gauging methods and procedures. It covers the level measurement, tank gauging and the various types of gauging; the innage gauging, outage gauging and free water gauging; the temperature measurement in land tanks; the manual sampling of the land tanks; the buoyancy tape systems including the hydrostatic pressure and ultrasonic measurement; the vibration switches, radar measurement and high precision tank radar REX; the antenna design important for reliability as well as the radar tank gauging for LNG carriers; and the marine radar technology developed for oil tankers. By the end of the course, participants will be able to measure gauging accuracy and apply outage and innage gauging procedure; identify gross observed volume (GOV), gross standard volume (GSV) and net standard volume (NSV); use portable tank gauges; and recognize gauging tanks with floating roofs; and analyze the effect of random errors in land tank measurement as well as the safety and hazards.
